More cases of ‘Havana Syndrome’ have just been reported at American embassies in Geneva and Paris, WSJ reports. Officials employed at both facilities have been afflicted by the neurological attacks, and at least one victim was evacuated back to the US for treatment.
Like most prior reports on Havana Syndrome attacks, this one comes with a significant delay: the attacks were first reported internally last summer, and quickly made their way to the State Department back in Washington. At least three cases of the syndrome were reported in Geneva, and there was at least one in Paris, WSJ said, bringing the total number of Havana Syndrome victims to close to 200.
While the Biden Administration’s State Department insists on calling the attacks “anomalous health incidents,” the CIA doesn’t mince words. The “attacks” continue to befuddle America’s best analysts. Nobody has a clear idea of what’s causing them, or who might be behind it. Scientists have blamed crickets in Havana, and – as we mentioned above – those dastardly Russians. Yet, five years after the attacks started, the US appears no closer to the truth.
